Why study Maths? 

Maths helps us understand the world.  

Learning Maths improves our ability think clearly and effectively so we can solve problems. 

Maths knowledge and skills are important for all other subjects and aspects of life outside of school. It’s nearly impossible to go a day without using Maths! 

We think solving Maths problems makes people feel good and the more we study Maths the more fun the problems become!

 

Key Stage 3 Curriculum Information: 

Our curriculum ensures that all pupils are able to make good progress regardless of their prior attainment. 

We teach with the aim that all pupils will achieve a full understanding of the knowledge specified in the curriculum for each year, and we want this understanding to be retained and developed over time.  

Our curriculum is carefully constructed to ensure that students are confident with the specific mathematical skills needed before moving on to solve problems. 

The curriculum has been carefully designed to continuously interleave content, enabling pupils to revisit prior knowledge. 

Our curriculum map can be found on the school website here
